Am I right? Palm Sunday this week and Easter next week? And right smack dab in the middle, on March 19th, the 5th anniversary of the start of the United States’ elective war against Iraq? Sweet, Dubya, sweet. John McCain sings, “Hosannah.” Republicans sing, “Hosannah.” I sing, “Impeach, impeach, impeach!”
Meanwhile, Obama posted (on Friday) his response to the Reverand Jeremiah Wright flap on the Huffington Post. And you know what? I think we need to chill and get things into proportion here. A sermon delivered by a Chicago pastor has everyone all in an uproar, and yet the lies told by our President and his Administration have us kinda, sorta somnolent. Good god, y’all! (And I don’t mean y’all as in YOU … definitely mean it as in US!) For those of US who are into music, here are the Top 40 lies told to US by our fearless leaders.
And as a small aside … whle I have tried to maintain a scrap of respect for Colin Powell through all this, I’ve lost it entirely after hearing (in “Taxi to the Dark Side“) the comment he apparently made after the “facts” he brought to the UN were proved false. He said that that day was the “most embarrassing day” of his life.
You know what, Colin … it ain’t about you!
